It didn’t take us long to find our compartment aboard the steel gray train.
“I can’t believe we’re traveling across the country by train,” said my best friend. “You were right. We needed to get away from all the stress and just be normal twenty-something-year-olds for a change.”
At that moment, our compartment door slid open and two attractive men peered inside.
“Nope, wrong compartment. As you were, ladies,” one of them said before closing the door.
“Do normal twenty-something-year-olds fall in love on trains?” My best friend asked.
We erupted into giggles as the train slowly left the station.
